am i reading this right?
that just good airflow is all thats required... the reason i ask is i purchased a G540 off ebay and my fan wont be here tell next week :/ just wondering if i can install a os and surf web (no games of course) tell the fan shows up. I can monitor the temp in bios, but i dont wanna fry the chip before i get that far :/

sounds a bit dangerous. the review does not say what original heat sink if any they did the test with.
